DeptfordFolk is the park user group for Deptford Park and Folkestone Gardens in North Deptford’s Evelyn Ward and we are planting 200 trees in the ward. This area has the lowest number of trees and worst air quality in Lewisham. The ward is named after 17th century writer, John Evelyn who wrote about both air pollution and trees; 2018 marks 200 years since the publication of John Evelyn’s famous diaries. Evelyn200 is an idea to reference our past and have a positive impact on our future by making changes today.
